    I spent a lot of time considering what IPod dock to choose. Came very close to purchasing one of the new Bose models, but at between £200-£300 I decided against it. There's also a lot of confusion out there with regard to which IPod docks will charge the 2nd Gen IPod Touch and IPhone models. Thankfully, the Altec Lansing T612 will happily charge all 2nd Gen IPod Touch and IPhones.

    The sound is deep and rich, and should satisfy even the most critical music lover. The remote control is very useful too, and will enable you to play, pause and skip each track, as well as increase/decrease bass and treble. Admittedly, it would be better to have a more comprehensive remote with more functions. However, for the size and convenience of the remote, it's perfectly adequate.

    The Altec is very pleasing to the eye and will sit compactly and unobtrusively in a any room. It feels solidly built and also it's extremely simple to operate with the power, volume, base and treble buttons located on the top of the panel.

    Personally I like the fact that the Altec will charge my IPod Touch even when the Altec is switched off. I presume the unit stays in stand-by mode when switched off to allow you to park your IPod and charge it.

    Tip for IPod Touch users: The Altec comes with a black plastic dock installed. This is tailored for the IPhone, which is thicker than the IPod Touch. You can simply pop this out and replace it with the white plastic dock that came with your IPod Touch. Then you're all set.

    I got a special offer from Apple, so picked up the Altec for £100. Even at full price, this is worth buying though.

    After buying another unit previously as a present for someone else, I was little nervous at how this unit would work with the latest Iphone 3G (2.2) 16 gig. The previous unit I had bought (different manufacturer) assured compatibility with latest pod versions etc but it proved false which was infuriating. However the T612 works perfectly. Charges the Iphone as specified. iPhone does come up with and occasional message about it not being designed for Iphone, and prompts to set itself to aircraft mode. Despite the prompt it works perfectly.

    As for sound I 'm pretty knocked out. very warm big sound. Plenty of Bass. Very well made. Being able to adjust the Treble and Bass is a nice touch. Remote works great. The seating is quite tight for the Iphone's you have to ensure its in firmly. My guess it's just a tad tight, however it works perfectly well. I get nervous about applying any kind of pressure to seat the phone hence my comment on it.

    There is no interference at all from Phone signals. Crystal clear so a perfect match for the Iphone. to my surprise I received a Bluetooth hands free ear module in the box as well which a great bonus. Setting it to aircraft mode helps eliminate any possible interference which I often do, however I've not detected any so far when the iphone is not in this mode.

    In all extremely impressed and very happy with the purchase.

    I've had the older model of this speaker dock since I first got an ipod, years ago. Unfortunately, the new iPhone 3GS didn't work with it, so I had to look around for something new. Despite being a bit annoyed at Altec Lansing (or Apple, more likely) forcing me to change it, I've been so pleased with the speakers that I didn't even think of getting anything else.

    I'm not a sound techie, and I'm don't listen to loads of loud 'bass heavy' music - but when I first heard this thing I was really blown away. Let's face it, it's not one of those huge stereos with separate speakers and sub-woofers - it just looks like a stylish ipod stand - but it produces a really rich, balanced and textured sound that fills any room you put it in. The bass is deep, the trebles are clear and there's no crackling or 'buzz' (like I said, I don't listen to anything particularly loud, so I don't know if there any problems if you really crank it up). Maybe I just didn't listen to music 'properly' before, but I found myself listening to all my favorite tracks again just to hear how they sounded on.

    It's worth noting that the picture seems to be showing the unit I used to have - the old model - with a sort of silver/grey mesh over the speaker. The new one (at least, the one I got) is jet black, and has a sort of 'rubberised' feel to it. It's not a criticism - I actually think it looks better - but I think Amazon need to update the picture.

    Trying to think of downsides...The remote control only adjusts volume, track skip, play pause.. the usual. Looking at some of the other speaker docks around, it looks like they offer other remote functions like headsets for the phone and shuffle buttons. Personally, I think those sort of things are gimmicks that I probably wouldn't use - but take note if you're looking for something like that - this machine charges the iPhone/iPod and plays music really well...and not much else. If that's what you want - get this.

    This system oozes quality, rich deep sound wrapped up in a solidly built case - should last for years. Remote function works well with ipod. Very happy I bought this and not the Bose. Only downside is no radio function which would have been nice.

    I spent a lot of time researching just what would be the best speaker dock to buy for my iPhone. In the end a great review from the Which guide pointed me in the direction of the Altec Lansing series. With the T602 (The only dock to date specific to the iPhone) I was particularly impressed by the fact that my iPhone didn't need to be in flight mode for speaker docking and also that one can still take calls whilst the iPhone is docked. (You will need a bluetooth headset for this as the iPhone's internal micropone is covered when the the phone is in dock.)
    When the item arrived, I was very happy with the design. It looks and feels like a quality piece of kit and although it came with a concise instructions booklet, I didn't need it to get going.
    I tested the machine with Stravinsky's Les Noces which is a monster piece with some very loud moments that some speakers find it hard to cope with. The amount of volume possible is staggering with very little distortion even at the extremes. It gives a pleasing amount of bass and I found that tweaking the levels of Bass and Treble which one can do on the machine itself or with the remote, (blue lights behind the metal gause give a visual representation of this along with volume) really got the best out of the sound. Having worked through Lotti's Crucifixus, some Bach motets and the King's Singers' Beatles Collection I moved on to Wonderboy by Tenacious D (for which I had to make some Bass/Treble adjustments to get the best quality sound) I was very impressed with what I was hearing. I would go as far as to say the sound quality is better than the average home hifi. (I have now retired mine.)

    The only downside I can see is the fact that one can only adjust volume and move from track to track within an album from the remote.
